Richard, During drying, another pileus dissolved and covered the drying fungi below.. I did try to get a spore print but didn’t want to leave it too long due to the numerous active lavae, and the hot conditions.. I still have the dried specimens, but I thought they may be contaminated by the fungi above in the drier. I do still have the dried specimens.

my bad…

i was on my phone and was thrown off by what appears to be blue staining at the base of the stipe and along the pileus margin.

Ian, do you know what color the spores are or can you look?
